This is my 4th blog about feature films, TV series and documentaries with clothes of mainly kids and teens in Western movies. Have fun. You will find here informations, trailer videos, low-res images and personal comments/ratings. You will not find here complete videos, download links, shopping links etc.
Family film starring Gene Wilder -Year: 1971 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Mike ~11 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: I think this is Paris Themmen in a yellow shirt, beige pants, blue scarf, white boots and a white Cowboy hat. Also a light brown jacket with fringes. He also wears a blue white checkered shirt and red scarf with a black flat Cowboy hat on.
I have seen this movie many years ago and don’t remember all scenes.
I prefer the 2005 remake starring Johnny Depp (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) which I even own on DVD.
Also a chubby boy in Lederhosen and traditional German clothes (Lederhosen blog rating 3).
Rating 5 for now but needs to be rechecked the next broadcasting.
Great story by Roald Dahl. I don’t like Gene Wilder but R.I.P.
Western starring John Wayne -Year: 1962 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girls ~9 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: yes, TV recording -Clothing occurence: low -Rating: 3/10 -Rating:*** -Comment: Some boys and girls, around 9yo, some few a bit younger, in an one-room schoolhouse. Mainly Mexican looking boys. Shirts and pants without suspenders. Also at least one older teen girl. Most or all have pigtails.
Part 2 of the recent Western TV weekend.
Typical b&w western. I think very few scenes of the kids. Also starring James Stewart.
TV Western series 1955-1975 -Year: 1974 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Lester ~8 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, TV recording -Clothing occurence: medium -Rating: 3/10 -Rating:*** -Comment: I think this is 8 or 9 yo Todd Lookinland aka Todd Lookingland (“The Brady Bunch”, probably the brother of Mike) in beige pants with suspenders and in a beige corduroy suit with a bow tie at the end. Several scenes with him.
I don’t like this young actor and his haircut. There are definitely better episodes. What else should I say about this? Nice one-room schoolhouse, but I don’t remember other kids here. Maybe I have missed the beginning (not sure).
Western starring Stewart Granger -Year: 1965 -Country: Germany, Yu -Who in clothing: boys, girls ~5-10 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: low -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: Some, mainly younger kids, boys and girls in different clothes. A boy in beige pants with H-style suspenders, one in a brown suit, another in pants (jeans) and a green shirt. The kids are singing, conducted by Heinz Erhardt.
Girls in pigtails, some in sailor-style dresses. Also some women.
Some other scenes of (this and/or other) kids, but mainly from a distance and in the background.
Starring Pierre Brice, Terence Hill and many others. A similar Karl May movie has been aired before that (coming soon).
Rating 5 only. Somehow I never paid much attention to Winntou movies and most I don’t like.
Disney family film -Year: 1988 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Randy ~9 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: Jason Clarke Adams aka Jason Adams in a beige Western shirt and I think dark pants with brown chaps and a beige (straw ?) hat. Also shirtless. Also starring Jerry O’Connell (shirtless as well). Set in the 1950s.
I found this by coincidence searching for a related (Jean Shepherd / A Christmas Story) movie starring Damon Raskin (for my overalls blog).
Quite interesting but I think few or very few good scenes. Also bedroom scenes, soon on my other blog.
Rating 5-6 for now only.
Today’s Winnetou movies and Gunsmoke episode coming soon.
Western starring Randolph Scott -Year: 1948 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Johnny ~11, woman -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: Gary Gray in tight, dark, striped pants, I think not jeans, a vest and a flat hat. Also a woman with a Cowboy hat, also riding.
I didn’t had the time to check the complete movie. But it looks interesting.
Pic 2 at the beginning, pic 1 shortly later. Obviously several good scenes of Gary.
Warner Archive DVD, so probably a DVDr. I think, I won’t buy it.
Western starring Bill Elliott -Year: 1949 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Doll ~29 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 3/10 ? -Rating:*** -Comment: I think this must be Marie Windsor as fugitive Doll Brown in a vest, Cowboy hat and green scarf.
I have checked this some time ago and can’t say much more yet. 90 minutes Trucolor.
Obviously a typical Western for it’s time. I don’t remember younger actors in here.
Family series, 458 ep -Year: 1997-1998 -Country: Argentina -Who in clothing: boys, girls ~8-13 -Available on DVD: no ?
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low * -Rating: 5/10 -Rating:***** -Comment: Several boys and girls and some few grown-ups in Western clothes including hats in episode 236. Not sure about women and if chaps. Needs to be rechecked.
As announced on my overalls blog (rating 8 for many girls and boys in overalls).
Good and funny saloon scenes but only known in this episode. Good costumes, also the dresses of the girls.
